Subject: bogus
Clearly muted speaking, only select sections of speech are not censored out. This is not that old to have sound drop out and you can heard loud news narrative that they attempted to cover with deafening silence. It a bad hack job on historical news reel.

Subject: The Great Pumpkin(s)
At a time when Nixon and his investigators were seriously beginning to doubt the truth of Whittaker Chambers said, and demanded something more concrete from him, he produced The Pumpkin Papers, and this is the news reel that accompanies it.

This marked a turning point in the Hiss case, not only did Nixon and Stripling finally have something from which to work, the tale of the pumpkin patch was bound to catch the public's imagination.

The only sound on the recording uis Chambers saying "Mr Hiss is lying" at the HUAC hearings.

This is a seminal piece of history, which you can watch again and again...
